When creating a Pull Request for something that doesn't yet have an issue, please describe the problem your pull request is attempting to solve

Local Development

You'll need rust stable installed, or rust nightly if you want to generate accurate coverage.

With rust installed, compiling CoveAPI should be possible with roughly the following:

$ git clone

$ cd CoveAPI

Docker Development

In case you don't wanna interact with Local Environment you can use the docker container to test and contribute following this:

  • Build Image:
$ docker build -t coveapi .


For Providing a good and consistent experience, we recommend using pre-commit - a tool that runs a set of checks before you commit your code.

Git Hooks

First you need to install the pre-commit tool, which is installed before with the Dev Dependencies.

Now, install the pre-commit hooks in your .git/hooks/ directory:

$ pre-commit install

This one will provide a linting check before you commit your code.


The .pre-commit-config.yaml contains the following configuration with the linting packages.

  • pre-commit-hooks - Some out-of-the-box hooks for pre-commit.
  • Locale hook - Using cargo fmt to format the code & clippy to lint the code.


First, make sure you set up your environment as described above, that will install all the requirements.

The documentation uses MkDocs.

All the documentation is in Markdown format in the directory ./docs.


To Build AuthX Documentation we need the following packages, which are:

  • mkdocs - The tool that builds the documentation.
  • mkdocs-material - The theme that AuthX uses.
  • mkdocs-markdownextradata-plugin - The plugin that allows to add extra data to the documentation.


To Help enhance the documentation, you can use the pre-configured development environment:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt

after Installing the requirements, you can run the development server:

$ mkdocs serve


Test the crate

As we know, the tests are very important to make sure that the code is working If you want to generate the test report:

$ make test
